Minnesota Fishing

Top Fishing Destination in MN

Leech Lake is known for being a top destination for fishing in Minnesota. With Minnesota fishing resorts and fishing lodges trimming the renowned Leech Lake shorelines, and 112,835 acres of clear, abundant waters, it is no wonder that this lake nationally recognized as a gamefish lake and referred to as a "walleye factory".

There is no doubt that Leech Lake offers the best walleye and muskie fishing in the Midwest, but it also has great fishing when you are looking to take home a Largemouth Bass, Northern Pike, Crappie, Perch, Bluegills, and of course, the Eelpout. There are also many local professional fishing guides waiting to take you on the fishing adventure of a lifetime.
